Treatment of Cosmelan is a two step process. The first step consists of an application of the cosmelan mask (brown mask) that is applied in the physician office by a professional. The patient goes home with the brown mask left on their face for anywhere between 6-12 hours depending on skin type. The mask initiates the lightening process and begins the breakup of the pigmentation spots.
The second step is a homecare application of Cosmelan 2 cream. The Patient is sent home with a kit that contains Cosmelan 2 and the application of this home care maintenance is required to continue the lightening process and inhibiting of further skin discoloration.
There is no cure to melasma therefore continuance of home maintenance creams is recommended for long term and follow ups and other treatments to maintain may be necessary.
